Exhaustion from Joy? Is that really a thing?
The last two weeks have been a whirlwind for me. I released two new books on the market and we had a major party for my baby who turned 9. So much to celebrate and yet so completely exhausting!!! I’m not trying to brag here, I really do have a point to make.
After all the excitement, I created a video on Monday to announce the presale of Joy N’Kate: Calm in the Chaos. When I reviewed the video afterwards, I looked at myself and thought, “Wow – I look SO tired!” And then I never released the video because I thought that no one would want to see an exhausted looking “Joy”. (More on the video later.)
That’s when I began to reflect on these new feelings. Exhausted? Well that is nothing new in my world. But exhausted and still joyous? Yeah, that is actually pretty cool.
In the past, when life became exhausting it felt hard and overwhelming. I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. This time though, a new set of dynamics came into play where I was putting out so much energy for so long and yet still feeling completely happy. It is like that feeling when you were a kid and just came home from the best birthday sleepover ever or you just won your team championship in sports. Exhausted, but so so happy! And strangely, ready for more.
After taking some time to reflect, it made me realize how I have changed my life completely over the past two years. It was what I always felt was possible, but wasn’t really sure how to make into a reality. After many years of research on the subjects of wealth, happiness and success, I’ve finally made sense of it all. (Yep, money and happiness had perplexed me since the age of 5.) I’ve attended numerous seminars, read hundreds of books, run a few businesses and had a lot of trials and errors throughout my career over the last 30 years. Now, here I am. I’m finally on this new path, looking forward into the future with such enormous excitement.
So why am I sharing this publicly? No, I’m not trying to piss you off or make you feel less than. Honestly, I’m not. It’s because I spoke to an old friend yesterday, who is at the beginning of the path I just traveled. I’m so excited for her and it made me realize as we chatted, that I can help her smooth the ride.
She asked me one important question that sparked a revelation inside me. She asked me, “how do you maintain that space? You know, that energetic feeling of excitement and motivation for finding your new meaningful path when everything around you in your daily life is dragging you back down and draining your energy?”
That moment is when I realized that I can help. Not only her, but I can help all the souls out there who have come to understand that there is something better for them in this human experience. You know the people, they have done “all the right things.” They got the degrees, the titles, the “so called” successes and even made good money. But somewhere deep inside, they still feel there is something missing, something unfulfilled. (Been there done that.) Do you know anyone like that?
My “Joy” adventure started with a book for children almost two years ago and yet I always knew it was just the start of something much much bigger. And so, as I continue on this path of Joy, I am expanding my repertoire to help adults too. Want more Joy, more excitement and satisfaction in your life? Want to find that THING you are supposed to be doing? Want to feel that joyous exhaustion instead of overwhelmed? Reach out and let me know and I will share with you what I’m doing to help. I’ll will also be releasing more information soon about my ever-expanding portfolio and ways you can jump on this exciting train with me. It is so much more fun to travel with friends, right?
Thanks for taking a moment with me and I hope you at least feel a ray of hope for the future ahead. And, if you want to see that video I was talking about earlier, here is the link. Just please overlook the bags under my eyes and my puffy face…LOL! That’s why I’m releasing this today for you, so you can witness a life of exhausted joy.
N’Joy, ~ Kristina
